March Meeting Scientific Program
The 2010 March Meeting Bulletin of the American Physical Society, also called the Scientific Program, is a listing of all abstract presentation sessions at the March Meeting.
Fluorescent dye bypasses an injury on the main vein of a dicotyledonous leaf.
Water confined in the solvent channels of a protein crystal shows evidence for liquid phase of water at cryogenic temperatures (~ 130 K).
Water drops within oil drops within water drops within oil drops within water drops dispersed in an oil carrier fluid.
Optical micrograph of the nanoparticle detector and fluidic network
Schematic representation of recombination in a nitride semiconductor
Phase contrast image of a fabricated nanocalorimeter buckling under the tensile stress of a biaxially-oriented IBAD MgO film.
Strong variations in marine currents form a watery trap for phytoplankton cells on their daily commute to the Ocean's surface.
Quantum chemistry on a photonic quantum computer
Visualization of human mobility networks showing short-range multimodal transportation and airline connections worldwide.
Volume rendering of the gravitational radiation generated during the merger of a binary black hole system
Visualization of the global spread of influenza based on human mobility
Noise fluctuations reveal quantum phases in ultra-cold atom systems
Chemical etching can spontaneously transform a flat silicon surface into one consisting of nanoscale facets
The multifractal patterns observed by STM in the electron probability density of Mn-doped GaAs close to the metal insulator transition
A cartoon of a chemical sensor made from DNA and graphene
Atomic structure of a grain boundary in graphene composed of dislocations, pairs of adjacent five- and seven-membered rings in the honeycomb lattice. First-principles calculations show that topological defects in graphene exhibit a rich variety of novel physical properties with potential implications for graphene-based electronics.
Six frames from a high-speed video movie of the explosion of a balloon filled with hydrogen gas.
Find out why stacked apples seem so stable, but removing the “wrong” apple can lead to a produce-aisle disaster
Time-resolved image sequence of the laser-induced forward transfer of an ink from a thin liquid film
Light propagation in the cloak, for waves and for rays, with and without the mirror
These pictures show tiny electrical microcircuits encased within single crystals of diamond. These circuits are used to measure the physical properties of materials under pressures of up to several million atmospheres
Cell wall patterns for the relaxed, stress-free state of an initially random distortion
Spacetime time evolution of a line segment (or slash) and a point mass (or dot)
For broad spectral coverage, ultrahigh spectral resolution, ultrahigh detection sensitivity, and massively parallel detection channels
CFD simulation of the displacement of (transparent) water by air, which is injected through the bottom of the sand sample
Lithium metal dendrites growing through a polymer electrolyte for battery applications
Highly energetic charge carriers (electrons and holes) in a carbon nanotube device
Electrons colliding with the monolayer of DPPC (1, 2-dipalmitoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine) molecules deposited on gold
Manipulation of electron beam propagation by hetero-dimensional graphene junctions
A system of two "engaged" microscopic gears rotating by bacteria in opposite directions
A three-dimensional percolation cluster with sites colored according to their accessibility to diffusing random walkers
3D solar cells derived from genetic algorithm optimization largely outperform flat panels of same base area

The world's smallest biological electric motor
Low-energy clusters of micron-sized colloidal particles form a percolating network causing gelation in an experiment. Gelation is an example of dynamical arrest (vitrification), for which a structural mechanism has long been sought.
Atomic force microscopy image of ultrathin (~8 nm) disks composed of cross-linker-free poly(N-isopropylacrylamide-co-acrylic acid) microgel particles adsorbed on glass slides in pH 3.0 buffer
Fabricated from single crystal diamond, the "volcano" is an ultrathin (65 nm) suspended diamond shell
Pathogenic bacteria form suspended thread-like biofilms during flow
Hybrid graphene-membrane superstructures
When illuminated with a laser pointer, a spring of a ballpoint pen produces a diffraction pattern which is similar to the famous Photo 51 of helical DNA
